This is my original, easy-to-make recipe requiring very little time to be spent in the kitchen. Preferably use tender lamb cut in the shape of fillets, i.e. flat and square. It turns out very good and can be served with breads or rice.
Baked Spicy Lamb
- Lamb pieces (flat cut) – 750 grams
- Hung Curd/Yogurt – 1 cup
- Lemon – 1
- Ginger Paste – 1 Table spoon (Tbsp)
- Garlic Paste – 1 Tbsp
- Raw Papaya Peel paste – 1 Tbsp
- Salt – To taste
- Red Chilli Powder – 2 Tea Spoon (Tsp)
- Turmeric Powder – 1/2 (half) Tsp
- Bread Crumbs – 1/2 (half) cup
- Oil – 2 Tbsp
- Crisp Fried Onion – 2 Tbsp
- Cream – 2 Tbsp
Optional Indian spices
Marinate the lamb with all the ingredients except oil and crumbs for as long as you can, ranging between 1 to 6 hours.
Grease a baking tray and spread the lamb and cover it with Aluminium foil
Bake at 200°C covered for one hour and uncovered for another hour.
Sprinkle some bread crumbs and brush with oil and bake at 180°C for another 15 minutes till the crumb layer is crisp
Serve with sliced cucumber, lemon wedges and a cheese dip.
Healthy Eating Tip:
You can substitute the Bread crumbs with cornflakes powdered coarsely for a healthier option. The Indian spices are optional. Even on skipping them, the dish will still taste good.
